— S&K’s Fourth Annual Food Drive shatters previous record,
nets $2,222 check for food bank —
ELDERSBURG, MD. December 26, 2007 – With the help of customers, suppliers, employees and corporate sponsors, S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) was able to donate more than a ton of food to the Maryland Food Bank (MDFoodBank.org), surpassing last year’s donation by 1,075 lbs. The company president also matched each pound of donated food with a monetary gift.
Fourth Annual Food Drive a Success
On December 21, S&K Owner Don Katzenberger and Sales Director Charlie McCurry, the organizer of the Fourth Annual Food Drive, packed up the mountain of edibles and headed to the food bank’s headquarters in Halethorpe, MD. The load weighed a staggering 2,222 lbs., and, on the spot, Katzenberger wrote a check for $2,222 matching each pound of food with a $1 donation.
“We are overwhelmed, but somehow not surprised by the response from our neighbors, customers, employees and suppliers. The fact that we almost doubled last year’s contribution is a tribute to the type of community that we are lucky enough to reside in,” stated McCurry. As in other years, S&K’s annual food collection was held at the company’s home improvement showroom in Eldersburg, MD.
“Large donations from organizations like EcoStar (EcoStarInc.com), the Marquis Foundation (MarquisFoundation.org), Brave New Markets (BraveNewMarkets.com) and the Wesley Freedom United Methodist Church (WesleyFreedom.org) helped a great deal, and together with individual donations, we were able to exceed our goal for the fourth year running,” added McCurry
